There has been a trend sweeping YouTube in recent years of fans recording themselves watching live sporting events unfold, and then uploading their reactions for all the world to see. This has provided us with all kinds of tremendous sporting moments caught on camera from the fan’s point of view, like this remarkable compilation of fans watching Landon Donovan’s game-winning goal in the 2010 World Cup,.
And as you might guess, last week’s AFC Championship game between the Patriots and the Ravens provided all kinds of fodder for superfans everywhere to freak the eff out, with their cameras rolling. Between both Lee Evans’ near-game-winning-TD that wasn’t and Billy Cundiff’s field goal shank that lost it for Baltimore, the final few minutes were an emotional roller coaster for fans of both teams.
So that’s what makes this compilation of fan reactions to the game (aptly titled “The Agony of Defeat and Thrill of Victory“) – which features both ebullient celebration

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is expected to play in Super Bowl XLVI against the Giants next Sunday, despite a lingering high ankle sprain, NBC Sports reported, citing sources.
The All-Pro did not practice last week and likely will not practice at all before the game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Should he play, the sources said he is expected to be limited...
New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is a man of few words but most of his classic quotes have been compiled in this clip using the popular Internet meme "Sh** People Say".
Here it is without further ado, "Sh** Bill Belichick Says":
Say what you will about Tiquan Underwood. He doesn't have the best hands on the team, he may not be the fastest, but he definitely has the freshest haircut. Underwood tweeted a picture of his new hairdo. The Patriots are set to be sent off with a rally at Gillette Stadium on Sunday, and Underwood's high-top fade is sure to be one of the most talked-about parts of the event...
Bill Belichick knows that although the Patriots are the home team next weekend they're hardly the hometown favorite. At today's presser he decided to make the locals smile a bit by poking fun at his decision to go for it on 4th and 2 in the 2007 AFC Championship:
“I never had too much hospitality here until I went for it on fourth-and-2,” Belichick said. “Since then...
Before the Patriots headed out to Indianapolis to begin the festivities leading up to Super Bowl XLVI, they went to Gillette Stadium for a send-off rally. I was flying when it happened but when I landed, I can’t deny that I was surprised.
Turns out, 25,000 of you flocked to Gillette to send the team off, and this is a solid summation right here. Players and coaches took turns stepping...
Eli Manning over Tom Brady? It’s already happened once on the field this season, and that’s also what a survey of married women is now saying, according to AshleyMadison.com
The dating site for philanderers conducted a poll asking some perhaps not-so-happily married women who they’d prefer to have an affair with out the two starting quarterbacks in this year’s Super Bowl...
Unfortunately, kickers are either heroes or goats. Billy Cundiff will forever have to deal with that moment, and it's truly unfortunate.
This screenshot is from the Ravens' team web store. Absolutely ridiculous.

I usually don’t associate with any Gingers because everyone knows that they invented AIDS, but there is one Ginger that tickles my taint and makes me giggle hard and he goes by the name of Davey Mac. The Davey Mac Sports Program is the greatest nonsensical sports radio show that you’ve never heard. The show is a raucous ramblings of “Eastside” Dave McDonald which can be heard...
If the Super Bowl comes down to a key catch by Rob Gronkowski of the Patriots, say, or Victor Cruz of the Giants, they'll have more than merely their hands to thank.
Advantage, Giants. And it's all thanks to one photogenic shot of Tom Brady. The Patriots’ star QB appears on the cover of the Jan. 25 issue of Sports Illustrated, which hits newsstands today. It’s hardly Brady’s first go-round as coverboy he’s been on 15 SI fronts but if you’re a superstitious Pats fan, the timing couldn't be any worse.
The man in Osi Umenyiora’s way in Super Bowl XLVI is Patriots left tackle Matt Light — the only man Umenyiora claims to have ever fought on the football field. Actually they’ve fought twice, including once back in November.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Even the usually dour Bill Belichick was joking around as the New England Patriots arrived in Indianapolis for Super Bowl week.
